“Please, please stop blaming all of this on the Levys! It’s not their fault they failed.”
When I first read this I (seriously) thought Jonah was somehow referring to Confederacy of Dunces, and the New Orleans-based Levy Pants Factory which briefly employed Ignatius Reilly, who tried to lead the workers there in “The Crusade for Moorish Dignity,” wrote correspondence to “Mr. I Abelman, Mongoloid, Esq.,” and engaged in much more insanity. After a few minutes I recognized Jonah was punning. Dam!
